How to filter issues whose fix version is the "next unreleased version?"

While using JIRA Agile, we occasionally choose to descope an issue from the current version-in-development by assigning it to a future version. Because such issues are things we don't intend to deal with, it would be good if they would cease being displayed on our JIRA agile board until their fix version is current.

I could easily configure the agile board to display only issues whose fix version matches a specific version, but I would need to manually update which version is displayed every time we release; Is there any way I can set the board's filter to be "the next unreleased version, but none of the versions after that" in such a way that it automatically calculates which version is next to be released?

Ah, I worked it out - I need to use 'fixVersion = earliestUnreleasedVersions()' in the filter.

Just in case someone ends up here as I did, correct syntax is

'fixVersion = earliestUnreleasedVersion()'

I assume others will realize as I did that it refers to next (singular) after trying the suggested filter and failing, but just in case

I ended up using fixVersion  in earliestUnreleasedVersionByReleaseDate([project key]) because the syntax above seemed to return releases without release date

In case anyone else gets this error from this solution: `Unable to find JQL function 'earliestUnreleasedVersions()'.` - there's a typo in the filter function shown above.

It should be 'earliestUnreleasedVersion()', not 'earliestUnreleasedVersions()'.
